The Power of Right Believing

The power of right believing!

The Lord is our Shepherd and we shall not be in lack!

Romans 6:1-2
Chapter 6
Dead to Sin, Alive to God
What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? Certainly not! How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it?

The just shall live by faith. Faith is nothing more than right believing.

We don’t have to suffer to go to heaven but we only need to receive what Christ has done. That result in us blessing people!

Romans 5:20
Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more,

First word – Abound – pleonazo – increased
Second word – Abound- Huperperisseuo- superabounded

We have more than enough grace to be saved!
The sun was made for the earth to give light and heat. A lot of the light and the heat from the sun does not reach the earth. The earth only use a fraction of it.

The Lord created a oversupply sun for our needs!

Kenneth Wuest’s commentary

Wuest: Moreover, law entered in alongside in order that the transgression might be augmented. But where the sin was augmented, the grace superabounded with more added to that

Where sin increased, grace superabound!

How do u view your failure? God hate sin but God also loves us! At the cross, both are reconciled. Jesus never sin. God spared us and spared not His own Son for us. The demonstration of this love is He gives us His own Son.

God punished sin in the body of Jesus. That is how much Jesus loves us.

Every door of blessings was flunked opened for us!

Wherever there is sin, superabounding favor will flow in our life.

Everyone Jesus healed is like a visa card straight at the cross.
Jesus has paid for us to be free!

Romans 6:1
Dead to Sin, Alive to God
What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound?

Mark 16:7
But go, tell His disciples—and Peter—that He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him, as He said to you.”

Of all disciples, Peter’s name was singled out. Where sin abounds, grace superabounds.

The same mouth denied Jesus, Jesus asked Peter to feed His sheep and tend His sheep. Where sin increased, grace superabounds!
With the same mouth Peter preached and 3000 were saved!

David committed murder and this haunted him. David lost his son. He cannot go to him but one day he will go to him. They are growing up in heaven.

David had many wives. He had 20 sons and 1 daughter. With the same woman he had a boy called Solomon. The one God chose to succeed David will be the boy Solomon. In this dark episode, God is not looking at our past.

God gives us the law to show us up. God chose Solomon. Only 5 women mentioned in the genealogy. Jesus came from Judah. No matter how bad it is, our past don’t determine the future. Mary was the last one mentioned.

In God’s mind, our failures are not failures. We are not so strong unless we are truly weak

God can make everything work out for our good!

Luke 24:47
and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

2 Corinthians 12:7-10
The Thorn in the Flesh
And lest I should be exalted above measure by the abundance of the revelations, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I be exalted above measure. Concerning this thing I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might depart from me. And He said to me, “ My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect (show Himself most effective) in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

Boast in my weaknesses that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Rest means to fix a tent over Him.

When people come into our presence, they sense the power of Christ resting on us. It is when we glory in our weakness!

Strength to defend or ward off.

My grace is Sufficient – means strength to defend or ward off.

We are the temple of God. Greater is He who is in us than he who is in the world.

When we are in our self-confident mode, we are in dangerous mode! When we are weak and in Christ-confident mode, we are in safe mode!

Strength is when we are weak because we are in the place of not trusting ourselves but trust in Christ!

Even in our weakest moments, God’s power is there for us!

The Healer is Jesus and not us. Jesus don’t condemn short prayer! But He condemn long prayer for show.

Who takes pleasure in insult? The power of Christ rest on me.
When all these things held us, we depend on the Lord more! Those who has revelation and rejoice when weaknesses in life happen.

Grace abounds in our life!
Strength – miracle-working power.
God’s miracle working power show when we are weakest.

When you feel the least anointed and weakest, it is when we are strongest in Christ!

Grace is God’s supplies to undeserving phrases.

Sarah is a picture of grace.

God waited for Abraham until he was 99.

Genesis 17:1
Chapter 17
The Sign of the Covenant
When Abram was ninety- nine years old, the Lord appeared to Abram and said to him, “I am Almighty God; walk before Me and be blameless.

Since he went to Hagar, God did not talk to him till now. God did not communicate with him when he went to Hagar (went back to law)

Walk before God and become blameless.

Walk in the spirit, be Christ occupied!

God is a mighty God. Until Abraham was completely weak, he then knew God is almighty God.

God is almighty! When Abraham saw that God is almighty, he then become strong.

Negative (weaknesses) – receive God’s grace and receive Positive!
Negative and Positive – POWER!
God’s miracle working power shows itself most effective in His power!

God’s superabounding disproportional grace is positive!

Jesus rebuke hypocrisy. Pretending what you are not.

If you are doing that, u will not feel Jesus loves you because u r pretending what u r not.

God wants to come to us and love us there so that we will feel loved.

God will be our love! He knows we can’t love as much as He loves us. He wants to be our love!

Feel love where and who we are. In our negative, He loves us!
Reach out and receive.

When man speak evil of u, leap for joy! For great is your reward in heaven. We will experience it down here as well. God’s grace defend us!
God’s grace is positive.

Gift without anointing is dry. Depend on the Lord and look to Him!

When I am weak then I am strong!

Grace is God’s favor to those who are undeserving.

It is not finding negatives in our life so that we can get God’s positive!

Receive! Receive God’s positive! Having negative is just living. But learn to receive God’s positive!!

Believe Right!

Abraham tried to help God and slept with a servant girl and had baby. This was not God’s will. God never give Hagar to Abraham. Abraham took the law (Hagar) from the world.

God never spoke to Abraham for 13 years after Ismail came.
When Abraham was 99, he was not able to produce his own child.
Then God spoke to Abraham.

Genesis 17:1
Chapter 17
The Sign of the Covenant
When Abram was ninety- nine years old, the Lord appeared to Abram and said to him, “I am Almighty God; walk before Me and be blameless.

God’s part is All mighty! Our part is all weakness!

God is ALL mighty! We need God in ALL area!
Let God become everything in our life! He is ALL in our life!!

El Shaddai ! We are all weak and Jesus is all mighty! The champion came!

Believe and trust God! Born of faith! God’s champion!

Even when one is barren, but when one believe God, one brings forth champion! Extraordinary character baby we shall get!

2000 years ago He hung on the cross. Who will separate us from the love of Christ?
In all these things we are more than conqueror thru Him who loves us!

When you feel weak, smile! Let the weak say I am strong! Strong in the Lord! I cannot but He can!

Nothing shall separate us from the love of Christ!
We might sound and appear weak. In all these things we are more than conqueror through Him who loves us!!

Conscious and Conscience

Conscious and Conscience

Unmerited means unearned. It is all about Jesus. It has nothing to do with what we have done. God wants the gospel that Jesus died, to be revealed to all over the world. The gospel is not only for sinners but for believers as well. Is a success of our marriage and every areas of our lives! Save us from diseases, addictions.

When we come to God, conscience makes us aware of ourselves, the sins in our flesh.
When we eat from the tree of knowledge, our conscience is opened. God wants our eyes not to be opened by tree of knowledge. Conscience tells us what is right and wrong, but not God. Conscience allows many things that God does not allow. Conscience is not a safe guide, unless we are born again.

God wants our eyes to be opened by the Tree of Life! When the eyes are opened by the wrong tree, Adam and Eve had the expectation of punishments and afraid of walking with God. Before eating from the wrong tree, they were walking with God.

Faith makes us conscious of God’s love. Conscience makes us conscious of self and sin.

Two questions to address today –
1. One of the biggest challenge of the gospel of grace in arguments is – we are not under law for justification, but we are under law for our walk and holiness.
(Our judgement is at the cross. But if the devil is able to make u think there is judgement for us, there is untold danger.)- fearful looking forward of judgement.

The wrath of God comes on the children of disobedience and not on His children.

God wanna portrait Himself as a Saviour.

God is restoring message of that was originated from Apostle Paul which he received from Heaven.

2. When Paul said do not go back to the law, he is referring to ceremonial law??

We are going to answer these two questions.

Romans 7:1-13

Romans 7:1-2
Chapter 7
Released from the Law
Or do you not know, brothers —for I am speaking to those who know the law—that the law is binding on a person only as long as he lives? For a married woman is bound by law to her husband while he lives, but if her husband dies she is released from the law of marriage.

There are many reasons why Jesus died.

Romans 6:14
For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace.

Romans 7:3
Accordingly, she will be called an adulteress if she lives with another man while her husband is alive. But if her husband dies, she is free from that law, and if she marries another man she is not an adulteress.

They are so bound by Moses, but he is a servant. Grace and truth came by Jesus and Jesus is a Son and Son abides in the house forever. Servant does not.

We cannot be under the law and not under the curse. When one is under the law, one will be under the curse when one sin.

Galatians 3:9-10
So then, those who are of faith are blessed along with Abraham, the man of faith.
The Righteous Shall Live by Faith
For all who rely on works of the law are under a curse; for it is written, “Cursed be everyone who does not abide by all things written in the Book of the Law, and do them.”

There is only one way for believers to be under the curse again. Is to go under the law again. The law demands 100%. The law is holy and righteous. It is not made into manageable law.

Curse means empower to fail.
Grace means empower to succeed!

High regards for the law. The law will not give u holiness but it will show u what u really are. Law will manifest sin that is already there. It will not produce sin.

When commandments came (on the side, not the main), that the offends might abound.

God Himself will not directly be involved with the law. It was given through a mediator, Moses.

Promise and grace goes together. Even when people was under law, God has been giving promises to His people.

God’s requirement of man remains the same.

Mr Law cannot die. The law cannot but to condemn. There is no such thing as relax law.

If the law cannot die, she can die.
Dead to the law, to the body of Christ.

Out of been a slave to sonship! To whom we cry ABBA ABBA!

Servant obedience and son obedience is different.

A son running a restaurant given by his father, the spirit of obedience is different from the servant obedience.

Jesus is sinless. The law punished or curse Christ for our sin on the cross. When the law curse you to death, the law cannot go beyond that anymore. What Jesus did was for me. When Jesus died we died. When He rose, we are risen with Him.

We are risen! Risen is better than living. Every believers must live life as if death is behind us because it is! We are risen!
Jesus conquered death. Death, diseases are behind us. Our death was at the cross!

Jesus took our places and we were there at the cross!

The law cannot execute anymore again. We have died and risen!

Grace makes our hearts generous.

Not been under law means we are living high and fruits of grace.

10 commandments is not the transcript of God’s mind! His mind is more than what you think He has!
10 commandments is like the mirror. It shows! The mirror is inflexibly truth!

Mirror cannot cleanse away our blemish.

Man does not see his need for Saviour. They are trying to find some good in themselves.

Ruth married a man called sick. The man died. She followed her mother in law. Her mother in law asked her to go back to her god and her people. But Ruth did not want to. She follows her mother in law and her God.

Before God gave the Son, He gave the servant.

The law has no longer the right to walk over us. Boaz took over and married Ruth.
She is a picture of church redeemed!

The law cannot bend to redeem us.
When one broke one law, all are broken.

Jesus is my Goodness. He is my Identity!

Romans 7:4
Likewise, my brothers, you also have died to the law through the body of Christ, so that you may belong to another, to him who has been raised from the dead, in order that we may bear fruit for God.

Bearing fruit to God!
When we are dead to the law, it means we have a new “husband” the One who rose from the dead!

It is nothing of self, but all of Jesus. The grace of God will teach us!

Our righteousness is a gift from God! We did not take the exam, but we got a A plus! The reaction is, THANK YOU. We goes on to live a life of thanksgiving and not gossip about the One who gives us the gift.

The result is about bearing fruits.

God’s way are not hard. God invented sex. The devil pervert sex.

Enjoy our Husband Jesus. Love and think of Him all the times and fruits is always supernaturally natural!

Question 2 on ceremonial law will be addressed at part 2 of the sermon.

Sarah was behind the tent. She laughed in her heart when she heard this time next year she is going to have a son. She said shall i have pleasure, my lord been old also. She did not say shall i get pregnant. She said shall i have pleasure? Enjoy His love, have pleasure in knowing Him!
Have pleasure and the result is a baby! (The fruit) it will be effortless.

Romans 7:5
For while we were living in the flesh, our sinful passions, aroused by the law, were at work in our members to bear fruit for death.

The law bear fruits to death. It is about rule of life.

Romans 7:6
But now we are released from the law, having died to that which held us captive, so that we serve in the new way of the Spirit and not in the old way of the written code.

Romans 7:7
The Law and Sin
What then shall we say? That the law is sin? By no means! Yet if it had not been for the law, I would not have known sin. For I would not have known what it is to covet if the law had not said, “You shall not covet.”

The context is clear! This is about the 10 commandments law and not ceremonial law!

There are so much more to share but time is up soon.

Romans 7:8
But sin, seizing an opportunity through the commandment, produced in me all kinds of covetousness. For apart from the law, sin lies dead.

Sin is behind us. But maintain the faith position, sin and curse is behind us!
How shall we who are dead? We are immersed in Christ’s dead and risen!!

Something princely and princessly who walk in the spirit.
Royalty has come into our hearts!

Light, Knowledge & Glory

Light, knowledge and glory

Every hebrew letter is a number. This year is a year of witness in Israel. Early this year they had such superabundant of rain in Israel.
Like the rain that comes down and the snow from heaven, so shall My word be, it shall not return to Him void.

God’s word came down to where we are. Rain is hundred of tons of heavy water!

God allows His word to come down to us in drop size.

Loneliness is a effect of flesh.

Every successful marriage needs a third party, His name is Jesus!!

Focus on Jesus and not on each other.

We are drawn to each other when we admire Jesus!

The only blessing we are waiting for is our new body at rapture. A body that will never feel tired.

Trust God for health and longevity.

Isaiah 60:1-3
Chapter 60
The Gentiles Bless Zion
Arise, shine;
For your light has come!
And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.
For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth,
And deep darkness the people;
But the Lord will arise over you,
And His glory will be seen upon you.
The Gentiles shall come to your light,
And kings to the brightness of your rising.

1 Thessalonians 5:5
You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness.

That day shall not overtake us. We are sons of light and sons of days! We are never in darkness

Exodus 10:22-23
So Moses stretched out his hand toward heaven, and there was thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days. They did not see one another; nor did anyone rise from his place for three days. But all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings.

Super natural light! In all families of believers, there are light in their dwelling!

In His light, we see light!

In all the dwelling of people of God, there is a light! It is something given by the gift of grace.

We have light in our dwellings!

Genesis 1:3
Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.

The sun was not created on the first day.

We are not children of night.

We walk with Jesus we walk in the light.

1 John 1:5-7
Fellowship with Him and One Another
This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.

We are walking in the light.
It is where you are walking and not how u r walking

John 8:12
Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “ I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not (double negative “ou me” never, certainly no) walk in darkness), but have the light of life.”

1 John 2:9-12
He who says he is in the light, and hates his brother, is in darkness until now. He who loves his brother abides in the light, and there is no cause for stumbling in him. But he who hates his brother is in darkness and walks in darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes.
Their Spiritual State
I write to you, little children,
Because your sins are forgiven you for His name’s sake.

Loving one another is a sign/fruit that we are born again

Those who know they love best, will love best. Those who know they are forgiven much, will forgive much.

Galatians 2:9
and when James, Cephas ( Peter, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that had been given to me, they gave me and Barnabas the right hand of fellowship, that we should go to the Gentiles and they to the circumcised.

1 John 2:18-19
Deceptions of the Last Hour
Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour. They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us.

True believers continue in fellowship.
Once we know we are forgiven completely, we can face people with a cheerful heart and relieved!

Luke 15:16-24
And he would gladly have filled his stomach with the pods that the swine ate, and no one gave him anything.
“ But when he came to himself, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger! I will arise and go to my father, and will say to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you, and I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Make me like one of your hired servants.” ’
“ And he arose and came to his father. But when he was still a great way off, his father saw him and had compassion, and ran and fell on his neck and kissed him. And the son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight, and am no longer worthy to be called your son. ’
“ But the father said to his servants, ‘Bring out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet. And bring the fatted calf here and kill it, and let us eat and be merry; for this my son was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found. ’ And they began to be merry.

James 1:1
The Epistle of
JAMES
Chapter 1
Greeting to the Twelve Tribes
James, a bondservant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ,
To the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad:
Greetings.

1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Matthew 3:5-6
Then Jerusalem, all Judea, and all the region around the Jordan went out to him and were baptized by him in the Jordan, confessing their sins.

1 John 2:12
Their Spiritual State
I write to you, little children,
Because your sins are forgiven ( perfect tense) you for His name’s sake.

Perfect tense in Greek- an action that is complete and no repeat action
One act, once and for all and never need to repeat!

2 Corinthians 4:6
For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

Light, knowledge, glory! We have all 3 in the face of Jesus Christ!!
Put Christ in the centre!
Christ is grace

Jesus was not helpless

Jesus was NOT helpless at the cross

Why Jesus went to the cross?

The bible tells us that long ago before the foundation of the world was laid, God loves us!

His mercy and grace is amazing. It never ends!

We can still thank God even if we dont have the things that we want. Jesus is enough. Don’t be affected by the things that we do not have.

There are many things that we can rejoice about.

Our circumstances can always turn around. God can turn every evil situation around for our good! He is for us and not against us!

The truth is Jesus. Jesus is the truth and the Life!

Jesus is the resurrection and the Life! We live in a time when we will see the dead raised.

God has said so! This is the season for the children of God to raise up. We have a Saviour with everlasting love!

There are things that we don’t like to do and don’t want to do, yet we do it anyway.

Jesus did that because of love!

Matthew 26:36-39
The Prayer in the Garden
Then Jesus came with them to a place called Gethsemane, and said to the disciples, “ Sit here while I go and pray over there.” And He took with Him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and He began to be sorrowful and deeply distressed. Then He said to them, “ My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even to death. Stay here and watch with Me.”
He went a little farther and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, “ O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will.”

King of glory was willing to wash His disciples’ feet.

Gethsemane means Oil Press.

This was a moment of sorrow for our Lord. He was going to go to the cross. He knew everything that is going to happen to Him. He knew He will become the Man of Sorrow.

He knew all that yet He was determined to go to the cross.

The cup was not referred to the human pain.

Luke 12:4
Jesus Teaches the Fear of God
“ And I say to you, My friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do.

Jesus is the fearless Lion. He IS the Lion!

This cup was referred to the divine fury, anger and judgement that God will pour on Him

References of what the cup referred to –

Isaiah 51:17
God’s Fury Removed
Awake, awake!
Stand up, O Jerusalem,
You who have drunk at the hand of the Lord
The cup of His fury;
You have drunk the dregs of the cup of trembling,
And drained it out.

Revelation 16:19
Now the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. And great Babylon was remembered before God, to give her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath.

When Jesus became sin on the cross, God will forsake Him on the cross.

Every sin is wicked and evil. Every sin has been taken on the cross for us!

Luke 22:44
And being in agony, He prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground.

He was crushed at the cross. When His blood mingled with human sweat, we are redeemed from stress!

The blood of Jesus fell to the ground, He redeemed us !

Our Lord Jesus was determined to go to the cross for us. He was never afraid.

Because of us. He loves us.

Time and human history is marked by Jesus’ death. Before Christ and After Christ.

John 18:4
Jesus therefore, knowing all things that would come upon Him, went forward and said to them, “ Whom are you seeking?”

John 18:5-8
They answered Him, “Jesus of Nazareth.”
Jesus said to them, “ I am He.” And Judas, who betrayed Him, also stood with them. Now when He said to them, “ I am He,” they drew back and fell to the ground.
Then He asked them again, “ Whom are you seeking?”
And they said, “Jesus of Nazareth.”
Jesus answered, “ I have told you that I am He. Therefore, if you seek Me, let these go their way,”

When they came to arrest Jesus, Jesus stood forward.

The soldiers fell to the ground. Jesus asked them to let His disciples go and only arrest Jesus.

Jesus had the time to heal the soldier’s ear even when He was in the midst of getting “arrested” by them.

Matthew 26:51-52
And suddenly, one of those who were with Jesus stretched out his hand and drew his sword, struck the servant of the high priest, and cut off his ear.
But Jesus said to him, “ Put your sword in its place, for all who take the sword will perish by the sword.

Matthew 26:53
Or do you think that I cannot now pray to My Father, and He will provide Me with more than twelve legions of angels?

At any point in time Jesus could have just prayed and His Father will provide more than 12 legions of angels. He has all options. He is NOT helpless.

No one can touch or kill Jesus. It was not His time at that moment.

John 10:10
The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

John 10:11
“ I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.

John 10:15
As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep.

John 10:18
No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of Myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This command I have received from My Father.”

Matthew 26:67-68
Then they spat in His face and beat Him; and others struck Him with the palms of their hands, saying, “Prophesy to us, Christ! Who is the one who struck You?”

The Lord never fought back.
Isaiah 50:6
I gave My back to those who struck Me,
And My cheeks to those who plucked out the beard;
I did not hide My face from shame and spitting.

When they were spitting at Him, He stood still and allowed them to spit at Him. He allowed the beating. He gave His back and His face. He never hid.

It is NOT because He can’t fight back.

Jesus was led as a lamb to the cross.
The Roman soldiers beat Him. When they hit Jesus, not only will the whip heat Him. All His skins were whipped out. He could see His own bones. It is literal.

Isaiah 52:14
Just as many were astonished at you,
So His visage was marred more than any man,
And His form more than the sons of men;

The Bible tells us Jesus is altogether lovely, fairest of 10 thousands.

His face is a face u look at and u want to look at Him forever. He loves and He understands.

My Lord and my God. His is a beautiful face. Fairest of 10 thousands, lilies of the valley.

But this same Jesus chose to be disfigured at the cross. He was so disfigured that He did not look like a man. He was an horror at the cross. (In the amplified bible)

Matthew 27:45-46
Jesus Dies on the Cross
Now from the sixth hour until the ninth hour there was darkness over all the land. And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “ Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” that is, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?”

This darkness was for 3 hours. God turned His back on His Son!

God abandoned His Son NOT for selfish reason. He abandoned His Son so that we will not be forsaken and abandoned.

You and I will never ever be abandoned!

Amos 8:9-10
“And it shall come to pass in that day,” says the Lord God,
“That I will make the sun go down at noon,
And I will darken the earth in broad daylight;
I will turn your feasts into mourning,
And all your songs into lamentation;
I will bring sackcloth on every waist,
And baldness on every head;
I will make it like mourning for an only son,
And its end like a bitter day.

God’s Son died at the cross. That was the day of mourning for God. God mourned so that we will never mourn.

This is intense love! This is over the top!

You want to know Jesus and be loved.

Be loved by Jesus!
Experience it for ourselves. It is all in the bible!

Jesus drank every last drop of the cup of fiery so that we will never be in the judgement.

Our cup can then be overflows!

God want us to be healthy, happy, hopeful and He will never leave us nor forsake us!

Jesus drank the cup of God’s fiery.

It is not just enough to pay for our sin. Became poor so that we can be rich. Crown of thorns is a picture of curse. He came a curse so that we can be blessed. He forsook His glorious crown so that we can be blessed!

Jesus took time to fulfil every prophesy about Him in the old testament.

He said He thirst. He was given wine mixed with vinegar. He took the sour wine for us so that He can take our curse. He did every single prophesy and fulfilled for us.

Christ fulfilled 332 and more distinct prophesies in the old testament.

Truth must be backed by evidence.

Jesus IS the Son of God who loves us. Who gave His life for us.
He was anointed with oil of gladness. He is a happy person. Every where He went He was attractive and charismatic.

Jesus was not a Man of sorrow until He was at the cross.
Jesus is a happy Person. He was anointed with the oil of gladness. He was the happiest Man on earth.

He has joy to give. He left His joy behind for His disciples.

He shines like a Sun. In His presence is fullness of joy! He is fearless.

The day finally came. This Man of Joy became Man of Sorrow because He bore our grieve. This beautiful Jesus became a Man of Sorrow at the cross so that we know we can be freed from sorrow. He has borne our grieve. Look at Him! He deserves our admiration! We can believe in Him! God loves us!

Our God is a good God! The fearless One lives in us!

Jesus is enough

Christ is enough!

What Jesus has done is enough!

It takes little children to remind us Christ is enough!

It is that simple! Jesus is enough. You don’t need to be that smart, that rich, to know Jesus is enough!

If we are sick, Jesus, bore our sickness, by whose stripe we have been healed!

The message is simple but we are the one that makes it complexed.
He is the first and final word in our lives!

Romans 11:33-36
Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out!
“For who has known the mind of the Lord?
Or who has become His counselor?”
“Or who has first given to Him
And it shall be repaid to him?”
For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen.

Christ is the Source! Everything came from Him! (For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen. )

God wants us to catch how easy to see Christ is enough! It is easy!

Esther requested for nothing but for אה. The Sacrifice who would redeem her! Jesus is enough!

She believed God that she will find favour in the sight of the king. Esther was favored because of אה.

When אה is in our situation, it is enough!

If we r believing God for favor, Jesus is enough!

There is no need to fight. Jesus is enough!

The king of the land named the Feast as Feast of Esther! Esther has so much favor! He gave holiday because of Esther.

When one say Jesus is enough, it does not mean that there is no problems.

Esther 3:8-10
Then Haman said to King Ahasuerus, “There is a certain people scattered and dispersed among the people in all the provinces of your kingdom; their laws are different from all other people’s, and they do not keep the king’s laws. Therefore it is not fitting for the king to let them remain. If it pleases the king, let a decree be written that they be destroyed, and I will pay ten thousand talents of silver into the hands of those who do the work, to bring it into the king’s treasuries.”
So the king took his signet ring from his hand and gave it to Haman, the son of Hammedatha the Agagite, the enemy of the Jews.

A signet ring is to seal the decree.

Esther believed that Jesus is enough.
On the third day, the devil thought he had sealed our faith and killed our Saviour.
On the third day, Esther believed that Jesus is enough.

We are the righteousness of Christ!

Esther 5:1-8
Chapter 5
Esther’s Banquet
Now it happened on the third day that Esther put on her royal robes and stood in the inner court of the king’s palace, across from the king’s house, while the king sat on his royal throne in the royal house, facing the entrance of the house. So it was, when the king saw Queen Esther standing in the court, that she found favor in his sight, and the king held out to Esther the golden scepter that was in his hand. Then Esther went near and touched the top of the scepter.
And the king said to her, “What do you wish, Queen Esther? What is your request? It shall be given to you—up to half the kingdom!”
So Esther answered, “If it pleases the king, let the king and Haman come today to the banquet that I have prepared for him.”
Then the king said, “Bring Haman quickly, that he may do as Esther has said.” So the king and Haman went to the banquet that Esther had prepared.
At the banquet of wine the king said to Esther, “What is your petition? It shall be granted you. What is your request, up to half the kingdom? It shall be done!”
Then Esther answered and said, “My petition and request is this: If I have found favor in the sight of the king, and if it pleases the king to grant my petition and fulfill my request, then let the king and Haman come to the banquet which I will prepare for them, and tomorrow I will do as the king has said.”

The favor of God was with Esther

When Jesus is in the situation, favor of God is there.

Esther 2:15-18
Now when the turn came for Esther the daughter of Abihail the uncle of Mordecai, who had taken her as his daughter, to go in to the king, she requested nothing but אה what Hegai the king’s eunuch, the custodian of the women, advised. And Esther obtained favor in the sight of all who saw her. So Esther was taken to King Ahasuerus, into his royal palace, in the tenth month, which is the month of Tebeth, in the seventh year of his reign. The king loved Esther more than all the other women, and she obtained grace and favor in his sight more than all the virgins; so he set the royal crown upon her head and made her queen instead of Vashti. Then the king made a great feast, the Feast of Esther, for all his officials and servants; and he proclaimed a holiday in the provinces and gave gifts according to the generosity of a king.

Esther 9:1-3
Chapter 9
The Jews Destroy Their Tormentors
Now in the twelfth month, that is, the month of Adar, on the thirteenth day, the time came for the king’s command and his decree to be executed. On the day that the enemies of the Jews had hoped to overpower them, the opposite occurred, in that the Jews themselves overpowered those who hated them. The Jews gathered together in their cities throughout all the provinces of King Ahasuerus to lay hands on those who sought their harm. And no one could withstand them, because fear of them fell upon all people. And all the officials of the provinces, the satraps, the governors, and all those doing the king’s work, helped the Jews, because the fear of Mordecai fell upon them.

When Jesus is in my situation, Jesus is enough!

Today the Lord wants us to know this, whatever we are going through, Jesus has the first and final word! He is more than enough! See Christ! Christ is enough!

Whatever you are going through, Christ is enough!

We don’t have to be worried angry or stress!

Come boldly to Jesus because Jesus is enough! Believe simply because Jesus is enough!
We just rest and looking unto Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of our faith!

Jesus is enough.
